Covid-19-safety-ppeOur COVID-19 Safety Procedures

All our dentists & nurses have been trained to a very high standard and follow stringent infection control precautions as a matter of course during normal day to day operations in the clinic. Our clinics are adhering strictly to the Guidance on Managing Infection Related Risks in Dental Services in the Context of the COVID-19 Emergency. We also continue to adhere to the code of practice relating to infection control and prevention issued by the Dental Council.

In these unprededented times we have also further upgraded our controls and have added the following new measures in order to ensure the safety of our staff and our patients:

  1. Additional PPE  (preventative protective equipment) for staff including N95 masks
  2. Introduction of social distancing measures (including limiting the number of patients on site at any one time)
  3. Increased use of hand sanitizer in waiting room for all patients
  4. Temperature checks for staff and patients

What if I live more than 5km from Bowe Dental Clinic?

A dental appointment is an allowable excursion outside of the 5km radius as it constitutes essential travel as designated by Government. If you need an appointment, wish to discuss your treatment or just need advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 061 608 186.

Will I be charged extra for emergency treatment?

Our fees remain unchanged and we are absolutely not charging a separate emergency or call out fee. We also continue to see private, PRSI, medical card, and health insurance patients as normal.

What if I am nervous or unable to come into the clinic?

If you have any concerns or are unable to come into the clinic Dr. Bowe is also available to give advice to his patients over mobile and there is no fee for this service. Please call the clinic from 10am to 12pm to request a call from Dr. Bowe or outside of those hours text him on his mobile (087 976 3016) and he will call you back promptly.

When will Bowe Dental Clinics be re-opening for non-emergency treatments?

Bowe Dental Clinics (Limerick and Foynes) will both resume normal operating hours from 8.30am on Monday May 18th in line with Dental Council of Ireland’s guidance as part of the government’s road map for re-opening society and business.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming all our patients back to continue with your treatments!
